Early on "mod cut."

The OP is basically asking the following:

"I really want all of this man's dreams and desires to be fulfilled in Heaven, I think it would be horrible if God threw away all of the things he made for us to enjoy on Earth in Heaven

Also how does God feel about this man not getting the Corvette of his dreams and desires"



Issue or reference to Corvette used as a metaphor/example for what God will/will not grant those in heaven.

Please post on topic, and accordingly.

A good day to all!

~June

There are literal houses and buildings and businesses in Heaven just like Earth. There is a government and everything is ran IN ORDER. It doesn't matter who you are. When you accept Jesus Christ as your savior, you have just became a citizen of God's house, his paradise and abode, Heaven. He will give you ALL the desires of your heart. Down to the silliest. Don't let any Christian tell you differently and try to be a legalist. People have cars, boats, bikes, and all types of transporation in Heaven because God's children (All humans) loved them so much on this Earth.
AllenK893, I do hope you are correct, I think Heaven would be really awesome if God would bless us with earthly things as well as Heavenly things while we're all in Heaven, I also believe Heaven will be very much Earth

I only know these things because I read the book "Revealing Heaven" by Kat Kerr. It's on Amazon. The author says she was commissioned by God to be taken to Heaven to see things there and reveal his home to his saints on Earth. The book completely changed my life and everything I thought about Heaven and God. It's exhilarating to know that we will live a real life in Heaven and that all the good things we enjoyed here on Earth we will still get to enjoy in Heaven. I recommend reading the book. It's awesome.

I'll definitely have to look into that book sometime, it sounds like a really good book to read

REV 21:4 And God shall wipe away all tears from their eyes; and there shall be no more death, neither sorrow, nor crying, neither shall there be any more pain: for the former things are passed away.

REV 21:5 And He that sat upon the throne said, Behold, I make all things new. And He said unto me, Write: for these words are true and faithful.

A new Corvette? Na, I don't think so!

what did God mean by the saying "for the former things are passed away"?

Default Is God gonna bless and reward this man in Heaven?

I do not believe this is a genuine question . . . but I will answer as if it was. Nothing we do has anything to do with getting rewards from God. We are maturing sufficiently to be "born again" as Spirit. We will "reap whatever we sow" . . . but none of it has anything to do with God dispensing rewards or punishments. None of our carnal or worldly desires have any relevance to what we will experience or desire after we are reborn as Spirit.

"All" is all things passing away. The dead know nothing concerning this earth. The new life in Heaven is with a new mind called the Mind of Christ that is perfectly adapted to the things of Heaven. We have a carnal [mind of the senses] and sometimes or more often if you pray much, the Mind of Christ in measure while hear on the earth but in Heaven it will be complete. There will be no need for the relationships we have here and the things of this earth in Heaven
